A 9th grade student in Blair’s International Academy, Angel Lopez, was struck by a drunk driver while he was riding his bicycle a few days before Thanksgiving. Angel was in a coma for over a week and is slowly recuperating; soon he will be transferred to a rehabilitation hospital.
Angel’s father is his only source of emotional and financial support at this moment. Due to their economic situation Angel’s mother and five siblings are in Guatemala. Since Angel is a minor, his father has had to stay with him at the hospital and has not been able to work since the accident.
Angel’s teachers at Blair created a GoFundMe for him and his father. Click this link to view the GoFundMe page. Please consider donating to this worthy cause.
